Show Preview: Gang Gang Dance @ the Mohawk (10/3)

Date Monday, October 3rd
Location Mohawk
Doors 630p
Tickets $11 from Frontgate

I know, I know, Taking Back Sunday is playing Monday night, but this show over at the Mohawk is going to be far better, I promise. Some of the most creative indie music being made is coming to our town tonight courtesy of Gang Gang Dance.  They’re fresh off the summer release of their album, Eye Contact.  Their known for extravagant shows, and lets hope this is no exception.  But, you get twice as lucky if you come early, as opening band Prince Rama are a force to be reckoned with in their own right.  From what I know, PR brings one of the best live acts to town, so you couple that with Gang Gang Dance and you’re left with one brilliant show that’s a can’t miss. Pretty killer way to start off October with our friends at the Mohawk.

Show Preview: Hunx and His Punx @ Emos (4/12)

Date Tuesday, April 12th
Location Emos
Doors 900p
Tickets $8 from TicketWeb

Alright, so I know there is an incredible show going on outside at Emos on the same night featuring the Raveonettes, but the best place for you to be is indoors with Hunx and His Punx.  Hunx just released his latest album, Too Young To Be In Love, which is just chock full of great songs, all reminiscent of early American pop, just with a hint of grime and grit to it.  It’s definitely a show where you can get down, dirty and drunk, not to mention enjoying the whole ordeal.  Also, you’ll get to see some other solid acts, such as Shannon and the Clams and Fungi Girls, both who offer their own blend of refurbished Americana. Whether you have plans or not, $8 is a worthy price for such a great line-up.
